Our Values, Our Mission, and Our Vision

Biblical Authenticity

 Teaching a biblically anchored and practically applicable message. We will love the Bible.

Empowering Community

Providing opportunities for relationships that are characterized by humility, acceptance, grace, humor, forgiveness, and sacrificial love.

Cultural Relevance

Reaching today’s people through today’s manner.

Compassionate Outreach

Proclaiming the Good News of Christ by what we do and say. We will be an example of the love of God to those around us.

love people where they are at

John 15:12: "My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you."

When we say, “Love people where they’re at,” we mean it. As Jesus perfectly modeled, loving others is a decision to treat people with dignity and compassion for they are image-bearers of God.

help them follow Jesus

Matthew 4:19 And He *said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

We believe that God intended more for his disciples than to just believe in Him and then coast through life. Our goal is to equip people to live on mission of God, making disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-19).

Our Vision

Some churches are program driven but we are ministry driven. With this in mind, we’ve developed a vision based on four key goals:

LOVE Fearlessly

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18).

How will we do this?

  • Reach out to the international students in our community
  • Engage new attenders through strategic follow-up
  • Men’s mentorship program

SERVE Selflessly

Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last and the servant of all (Mark 9:35).

How will we do this?

  • Help kids serve in tangible ways throughout the year.
  • Create volunteer opportunities such as a café food ministry and an enhanced parking lot ministry to welcome guests in new ways.
  • Be part of the local “Every Child” initiative to help foster families and children in our community.

RISK Courageously

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but one of power, love and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7).

How will we do this?

  • Host conferences and training events
  • Add student ministry facilities in keeping with our original site plan, which will assist us in reaching youth in our community.
  • Designate $100,000 in the next capital campaign to outreach efforts.

EQUIP Deliberately

So Christ Himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip His people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ (Ephesians 4:11–13).

We will teach people to deepen their relationship with God, share their faith with others, and discover ways to joyfully serve using their unique, God-given gifts.
How will we do this?

  • Train volunteers and leaders in our church and community.
  • Invite new attendees to grow through ministry and serving opportunities.
    Develop student leaders who will impact the next generation.
  • Define simple entry points for involvement in small groups, activities, service teams and ministries.
